About Book
This volume investigates Alice Boner’s early life and artistic practice and critically assesses her sculptural work beyond a mythologization. It makes extensive use of the artist’s unpublished personal writings—diaries, letters, and papers preserved in her archive at the Museum Rietberg in Zurich—which offer unique socio-historical insights into the career of a Swiss woman artist and the obstacles and challenges she encountered. Alice Boner forged a life as an emancipated woman, and yet as this study makes clear, she perpetuated conservative modes of expression in her work.
